Meanwhile

Extinction Rebellion activists have glued themselves to one government department and to the underside of a lorry outside another on a second day of protests in central London.

Police have made more than 400 arrests, and those camped out in Westminster have been ordered to move on.

The [UK] prime minister has described the activists as “unco-operative crusties”.

Extinction Rebellion: Protesters glue themselves to government building (BBC)

This afternoon.

Dublin City Centre today.

Protestors from Extinction Rebellion Ireland staged a ‘slow cycle’ along the Quays to “highlight the impact of carbon emissions from car traffic in the capital”.

Cyclists made their way from Dublin’s Heuston Station to the 3 Arena carrying banners asking the public to choose between making Dublin a ‘carpool or a swimming pool’, referring  to ‘rising’ sea water levels.

We may drown in hyperbole.

Amen, brah.

Yesterday’s Extinction Rebellion’ protest outside Leinster House

A tipping point?

Termagent writes;

First thing I ask myself when I see a protest is “how sane do these people look”. And this crowd did not pass the test. And why would you make a load of signs that just have cryptic symbols on them? That’s completely contrary to the point of a big sign….

A graphic but essential warning of impending doom?

Or gooey fear porn?

The choice if yours.

Yesterday: Bad Blood
